pours a clear straw color with a thin white head.

Smells like sweet malt and grain with some bready malt flavor. The hops are floral with a bit of earthiness.

grain and bread flavor with some mild sweetness. There's some floral and earthy hops with just a bit of grass and bitterness.

The body is light to medium with a medium carbonation.

light and easy to drink, like you would expect from a kolsch. good beer.

Perfectly Golden and clear. Simple head. Smells of candy fruit flovors, not in that it is over sweet, but there is no bitter or crisp edge that an actual pear or apple has. Palate is malty, and almost grainy like grits, there is also a touch of fruitiness. There is far more flavor and maltiness here than I would expect from such a clean look. I love it, but do wish for just a touch more hops to cut that corn or grain flavor.

Far more grainy flavor that I was expecting and I love it. Great lighter session beer not devoid of some serious fruity malty flavor.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Pours a clear golden color with an inch thick head that dissipates after 2 minutes. Has very nice lacing.

Smell - Very feint consisting of grains and corn.

Taste - Sweet with grains, corn, and pale malts. This actually tastes like a pale pilsner to me..

Mouthfeel - Medium body with high carbonation.

Overall - This is one of the best Kolsch beers I've tried.

This is a great beer ! the beauty of this style and this brand in particular, is the bitter flavor is not overbearing , the taste is simple and yet delicious, the smell is that of the greatest hops, It smells like beer my dad used to drink,or the aroma I smelled when I was around rohrbachs brewery growing up.I've tried other brands of kolsch , including sunner and gaffel, have to give gaffel another try,but so far reissdorf has this import on lockdown tastewise for me.
